The agent for NBA free-agent guard Lester Hudson said Hudson is no longer a client after failing to show up for a workout with the Charlotte Bobcats. Tyler Glass, of Off The Glass Entertainment, responded to reports Hudson had dropped the agency. Instead, Glass told FOX Sports Ohio on Tuesday, its the other way around. We let HIM go, Glass said. It happened about a month ago. He had a workout scheduled with the Bobcats. He didnt go. He said he didnt receive his hotel information quickly enough. Hudson, 28, is 6-foot-3 and has played a total of 52 NBA games in three seasons. That includes a 13-game stint with Cleveland last year in which he averaged 12.7 points, hit a game-winning shot and drew praise from team owner Dan Gilbert on Gilberts Twitter account. The Cavaliers called up Hudson from the NBA Development League, and in somewhat of a surprise move, did not sign him for the entire season following the expiration of his second 10-day contract. Instead, Hudson finished the season with Memphis (three games, 3.0 ppg) and became an unrestricted free agent July 1. According to Glass, Hudson drew immediate interest from teams seeking backcourt help, but was waiting for the right deal. Glass said he spent the summer scheduling workouts for Hudson, including the one with the Bobcats. The Bobcats ended up eating a ticket for 750, Glass said. I worked so hard to get him a workout, and he didnt show. The Bobcats were annoyed and they should have been. Theyre a professional organization. You dont skip out on workouts. Hudson put together a four-game stretch in early April with the Cavs in which he scored 23, 26, 25 and 19 points, respectively, on a combined 44-percent shooting. He then returned to Cleveland on April 23 as a member of the Grizzlies, scoring nine points in 12 minutes. It was the only game of his three with Memphis in which he scored. However, Glass said not much stock was put in Hudsons strong performance with the Cavs, because they werent very good. Hudson could not be reached for comment and it remains unclear who represents him today. The knock on Lester is hes kind of an undersized (shooting) guard, Glass said. I think hes proved he can play point guard. He really can play in the league. But what happened with the Bobcats word gets around.
